Entries close this Tuesday for County Cross Country Champs

The first cross country champs for the New Year are the County Cross Country Championships which are held on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th January 2018 and you only have until Tuesday 19th December to enter.

The County Cross Country Championships are different from other cross country championships in that the race you enter is dependent on your entry criteria as an individual, and not the Club. If you're unsure which race to enter, please contact me, Lisa Pettit, and I'll advise.

Details for each championship are below and when you contact me with your entry details, please confirm which race you want to enter. For all races, please note an athlete who has competed in a County Championship, or represented a County in an Inter-County Championship, may not compete in the championship of another County in that calendar year. Again ask me if you're unsure if this means you!
